Kukla's Korner Hockey

And the Winner is…

Several weeks ago, readers were invited to submit a photo which they felt best illustrated the spirit of hockey coming into a new season, and now we have a winner:  KK member “The Freak” will be receiving a new, $169 pair of Easton Hockey Stealth S11 hockey gloves for his great entry. 

We also decided to give out an unplanned second prize to “Jdunc”. His submission titled “Game Face” was taken while dressed up to watch a hockey game at home on the couch, so we’ve thrown in a $25 gift certificate just for fun, to Ice Jerseys.com.

Both winners will be contacted next week, and you can see their submissions below. Our thanks to Easton Hockey for the prize, and we’ll look forward to another contest in a couple weeks. 

And of course, thanks to everyone who participated!

The Quiet Goal Scorer

from Pierre LeBrun of the CP via Yahoo,

Quick, name the NHL’s leading goal-scorer heading into the weekend.

Rick Nash? Nope. Dany Heatley? Nope. Alexander Ovechkin? Nope.

Try Mike Cammalleri. The diminutive Los Angeles Kings forward has 10 goals in 11 games, but you’d be hard-pressed to find too many hockey fans who knew that. Despite leading the Kings in scoring last season with a career-high 80 points (34-46) in 81 games, Cammalleri doesn’t seem to get the notoriety he deserves around the league.

Leafs Hysteria

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

...But what happens if you dispense with all the hysteria and hype surrounding both stories and apply the realities of today’s NHL — with its salary cap and entry-draft regulations — to Sundin and Tavares?

Are there any practical applications to be found that might actually advance the Leafs’ cause, now or in the near future? Or is it really all pie-in-the-sky?

For starters, consider the Sundin story, which gathered momentum after Toronto radio host (and former Leaf assistant general manager Bill Watters) suggested that the time was right to trade the team’s all-time scoring leader.

Another GM Candidate For The Leafs

from Scott Morrison at CBC,

...But what about Jimmy Rutherford?

OK, he has a job as general manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, who won the Stanley Cup a couple of seasons ago. But in the world of high finance anything is possible. Money talks and the Leafs have plenty of it.

Rutherford would be a perfect fit in Toronto. He played in Toronto and understands how dreadful the teams have been and how horrible the drought has become.

RBK Jerseys Here to Stay

Stephen Harris at the Boston Herald was the originator of some controversy yesterday when he noted:

According to sources in the B’s dressing room, Reebok has been unable to correct problems with the new jerseys introduced this season across the NHL and will replace them at the company’s expense with new uniforms made of the old materials.

This morning, Harris reports differently:

NHL senior vice president for communications Bernadette Mansur called about what she said were inaccuracies in a note here yesterday about the troublesome new Reebok jerseys.

Mansur said there will not be an across-the-board, leaguewide replacement of the shirts, which many players say tend to hold sweat inside, leading to drenched gloves. She said there are many players who have no problem with the new apparel, while those who want the replacements will get them.

Further, she said, the new shirts will not be made from the same material as in years past. They will have a new-performance fabric on their front half, with the back unchanged.
